Patrick Frenking performs J.S. Bach's Invention no.8 in F major. Performed at the Provincial House Chapel at the University of Missouri St. Louis.

Despite my best efforts, I have been unable to find anything about Patrick Francis Frenking, other than he is a marimbist. The difference between instruments of this class is as follows.

The Xylophone has a series of wooden bars, tuned to the relevant notes.

The marimba has similar wooden bars with resonators (originally gourds, now tubes) underneath.

The Vibraphone is a variant of the marimba, often with metal bars, but with a spinning butterfly at the top of the resonator giving a tremolo effect.

The Glockenspiel has metal bars, again tuned to the relevant notes.


Wikipedia: Johann Sebastian Bach
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750) was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations, and vocal music such as the St Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach Revival he has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.

Wikipedia: Inventions and Sinfonias (Bach)
The Inventions and Sinfonias, BWV 772–801, also known as the Two- and Three-Part Inventions, are a collection of thirty short keyboard compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750): 15 inventions, which are two-part contrapuntal pieces, and 15 sinfonias, which are three-part contrapuntal pieces. They were originally written as musical exercises for his students.
